First Creative Jumpstart Project 2020 with Natalie Kalbach

Hello Again, 
A New Year  is here and I am starting off with the resolution to get back to my art!  
I have two new knees and I am feeling great!

The first project this year is my version of "Transformation" with instructor Natalie Kalbach who is the founder of Creative Jump Start.  I have joined CJS for the last 4 years. I feel it gets me off to a good start and is inspiring.  

For the 31 days of January each year, Natalie has a group of 31 artists who follow a theme and do a short video of instruction on their interpretation of the theme. This year the theme is about what each artist thinks is their SUPER POWER,when it comes to their art.  Natalie's is the way she transforms one thing into another form or use.

After we do our own version of Natalie's SUPER POWER we post on our own websites as well as on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.  It is really fun to see how everyone interprets the video of the day.

Below are my versions of "Transformation" for January 1, 2020.


I used cut cardboard, rubber stamps, stencils, gesso, acrylic paint, and ink.  This is about 8"H x 6"W.  To see more detail, click on the image to enlarge.

This piece of cardboard had some large black numbers and several smaller ones, which added interest to the design.
The first painting had the sku of the box in black which you can see along the bottom when you enlarge. The same supplies were used.

"Hello" to all my friends on Paint Party Friday.  Please check all the wonderful Art on their website.
